Ecological Resource Centre
The Indigenous Environmental Interpretation Centre will be the main feature by which cultural diversity can be shared and encouraged. A Centre that presents indigenous philosophies will be the stimulus for the visitor to rethink their relationship to nature.
This centre will provide a hub for the ongoing monitoring of the ecosystem of the Red Hill Valley and surrounding ecosystems. It will also serve as center for regional, national, and International environmental policies and legislation.
Arts will be considered as a form of reclamation of the areas most impacted by industrialization within the Valley. An ecological view of design considers the artwork within larger contexts of how people, plants, and animals are interconnected with each other, the site, and/or the earth.
– Environmental installations
– Visual Arts
School Programs and summer camps
Because of the innovative programming options offered through the Joint Stewardship Board, the Red hill Valley will become a destination in the surrounding region for school’s and educators to advance skills and knowledge in:
– Health- Sustainability
– Community Stewardship
– Curriculum Development
– Teacher training
– Cultural teachings
Indigenous Worldview’s hold knowledge and inspiration from which we can draw upon to develop a sustainable future. Our goal is to foster the preservation and regeneration of culture and cultural resources. We will do this by promoting heritage tourism and facilitating communication among historic preservation professionals and the general public.
– Naturalized knowledge systems
– Great Law of Peace
– Oral History
Recreation and Outdoor Education
Walking through forests gives us an opportunity to rekindle the long forgotten attachment we once had with Nature.
Reconnecting with Nature is not the best way to set things right, it is the only way. So weather you want to come to the Valley for a leisurely stroll or join in an educational group tour. The Valley atmosphere is right for you and the entire family
The JSB programs will consist of:
– Eco Walks
– Plant identification
– Survival skills
Since food is needed by everyone, everywhere, every day, a small change in the way it is produced and marketed will have a great effect on individual’s health, the ecosystem and preservation of cultural diversity.
The JSB will take a bioregional and local approach in developing a new economy to support the valley. Our planning will provide opportunities for local farmers and artisans with:
– Community Gardens
– Natural harvest
– Seasonal food
– Cooking classes
The Joint Stewardship Board will be focussing on programming in the feasibility stages of the development of the Environmental Interpretive Center.
